Should've Known Better

I just responded to a post about Buenos Aires and it reminded of something I wanted to post here on SE:

A few weeks ago I had some friends over on a weeknight and I made steak with chimichurri sauce, homemade potato chips, and a salad - all recalling Argentina. Bueno.

After work I went to the store to buy everything and I started panicking about how little time I had to get everything together so I made a substitution:

I bought a jar of chimichurri sauce instead of making it myself (it's killing me that I can't remember the brand of this stuff but it was $5.99 for a tiny jar and it was AWFUL - not even CLOSE).

I should've known better.

Anyone want to share similarly-themed stories?
